Posts Tagged ‘packing snow’

In this Facebook update from Carnaval de Québec, we’re told to take advantage of the neige collante (packing snow) to make a bonhomme de neige (snowman):

Mes amis, profitez de cette neige collante pour construire un beau bonhomme de neige.

Neige collante is snow that sticks together when you compact it in your hands.

Neige collante is heavier than fluffy snow. It’s the snow you need to make a snowman.

You’ll also hear packing snow called neige lourde because of its weight. You can injure your back when you shovel it away.

There’s also an informal term for packing snow: neige à bonhomme. It’s “snowman snow” after all!
